Editorial Reviews


“I loved this. An original and terrific apocalyptic fantasy set in the real world.” ―Patricia Briggs, #1 bestselling author on Indigo Springs

“An edge-of-the-seat thriller.” ―Booklist on Indigo Springs

“A fascinating, multilayered tale of people caught up with forces beyond their control. Not only is it a cracking good tale, it's an insightful look into the consequences of using great power selfishly.” ―RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars on Indigo Springs

Indigo Springs is well worth a visit.” ―bookotron.com on Indigo Springs

Format: Paperback
Blue Magic is the second book in a duology by A.M. Dellamonica that began with Indigo Springs. I gave the first book a three and while Blue Magic improves on book one in several ways, it also takes some steps back as well.

The first book introduces us to Astrid, who upon returning to her hometown of Indigo Springs discovered a powerful source of magic with which she can enchant objects and people. Her longtime friends Jacks (who loves her) and Sahara (whom Astrid loves but Sahara's true love is herself), and her mother become involved and after some argument over how to handle the magic, tragedy ensues for some and Astrid is locked up by the government. Blue Magic picks up shortly after and broadens the canvas to global (and actually beyond) impact, and involves literally world-shaking and world-changing events.

The characters in the first book were a mixed bag for me. I found Astrid the most interesting, but a bit too passive and I can't say I really cared over-much what happened to her. Jacks was mostly a blank slate for me, a role to fill rather than a fully created character. And Sahara was just a bit too on the nose in terms of playing the villain. The side characters had little to endear me to them or set them apart. And the basic premise of the magic always seemed too strong to me in the sense that I never shook the feeling that things could have turned out so much better and so much easier had they just "done this or this or that" with the magic, which seemed wholly possible.

This nagging feeling only worsened as we entered Blue Magic, which ratcheted up the entire conflict into a literal war between/among four factions: The U.S.

In this second book of a duology A.M. Dellamonica explores the chaos that ensues when a kind of magical contagion (unleashed by accident in "Indigo Springs") spreads throughout the mundane world. Dellamonica attacks the problem with a sort of fiendish glee and cheerful energy; I grinned my way all through it. Though it is book two of two, it also successfully stands alone for people who are giving Dellamonica a try for the first time.

When I see the word "magic," I immediately think "fantasy;" but "Indigo Springs" and "Blue Magic" seem to me to be at least as much science fiction as anything else. Think of magic as a virus, isolated over the centuries by a small group of Fyremen dedicated to protecting the unwary and destroying both the virus and all of its vectors (people who have learned to channel the virus into productive applications); think of a small number of geographically segregated "wells" (existing in the wild, so to speak, unknown to the Fyremen) in which the contagion has over the years become concentrated and contained, like radioactive waste, in silos, under pressure; and then imagine what it's like when the seal of one such well begins to fail, with potentially catastrophic consequences for everybody on Earth.

Now think of a small group of volunteers working feverishly against time to mitigate the impacts of the existing leak; to contain the domino effect as the reverberations of the leaking magical energy, spreading world-wide, threaten to destabilize other such wells and set them off; and to derive a final and positive resolution to the problems this creates.

This is the sequel to Indigo Springs and I believe the final book in the Astrid Lethewood series. This was a much more linear and well-thought out book than Indigo Springs. I enjoyed the creative ideas in this book, even though at times the writing was still a bit ambiguous.

This book details the story of how Astrid is trying to control the release of magic from the well so that it doesn't destroy the world. It also focuses on Sahara's trial and her followers. In addition to that Will's children have been stolen by their mother who is a follower of Sahara and Will is desperate to save them. The story is told from many different perspectives and it worked well for this book.

This is a much more linear story than in the previous book and not quite as hard to follow. It was also a very creative story; I love the idea of leaking magic creating an eco-disaster of epic proportions.

Astrid is struggling, she is the keeper of the well. She is trying to release magic slowly so that the world won't be destroyed. The release of the magic is inevitable...but if it can be somewhat controlled the fall-out might not be quite as bad. She also needs an heir to pass the magic on to and she hopes it will be Will (the negotiator who worked with Astrid in the first book).

While Astrid struggles to try and heal the world Sahara is trying to rule it. Sahara is egotistical and pretty much insane. As time goes on the military is beginning to figure out that Sahara isn't the one with power...Astrid is.

Adding to the chaos are the people trapped in the other place, the place where the blue magic flows from. They want to get out but if Astrid lets them all out at once the magic will explode into the world and destroy it.
